BC Ferries Suffer Delays

Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Leaders Protest Coastal GasLink Pipeline

In solidarity with Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs, a portion of the Swartz Bay ferry terminal north of Victoria, B.C. was blocked this morning.

The demonstration caused the 7am sailing between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen to depart 2 ˝ hours late and the 11 a.m. sailing out of Swartz Bay to be cancelled.

Demanding respect for Wet'suwet'en sovereignty, the demonstration focuses on pushing back Coastal GasLink's 670-kilometre pipeline being built from B.C.'s northeast to Kitimat

Alaska Ferry To Be Pulled From Service

As a result of a vessel inspection showing that the M/V Malaspina needs about $16 million worth of repairs, she will be pulled from service in December and will be stored in Ketchican until a decision about her future can be made. 

As there isn’t enough money in the Alaska ferry system’s budget to cover the repair costs, no long term decisions for the ferry have been made.   

DOT spokesperson Meadow Bailey says the current sailing schedule will not be impacted.

Alaska Ferries Resume Prince Rupert Sailings

AMHS Sailings to Prince Rupert will begin again in Oct. 29 and Nov. 25.

Reservations are now available for booking at www.ferrytravel.com or by calling the the Reservations Center at 1-800-686-0446

Alaska Governor Michael J. Dunleavy stated that “The State of Alaska recognizes that the AMHS presence in Prince Rupert is important & we are committed to maintaining this route if it’s logistically and fiscally feasible.”

Future sailings to Prince Rupert will depend on factors that include the necessary financial investment & the long-term requirements of the Canadian Border Patrol.


Event Pricing In Effect for Alaska Ferries



Other fare changes include event pricing (a 10% increase for special events at a specific port) and change fees, which go up as the travel date approaches.

Greening The Washington Ferry Fleet





"The new hybrid vessels will benefit from an Olympic class hull form which has less drag through the water and a small wake for a positive environmental impact.
They will be capable of 100% electric operation on most routes once the infrastructure needed for charging is installed.
Over the life of the vessels, a 94% reduction in carbon emissions is anticipated along with the added benefit of significantly reduced operating costs for the ferry system".
